Famed firearms instructor Pat Rogers has suddenly died at his home after a massive heart attack. Pat Rogers was a retired NYPD Sergeant and Chief Warrant Officer in the Marine Corps, who turned his “street” skills into one of the most popular and highly acclaimed private firearms instruction programs in the nation. Pat incorporated E.A.G. Tactical in 1992, as the firearms and tactics training company to enhance professional and private shooters’ firearms skills in real-life engagement scenarios as opposed to static range or bull’s-eye shooting.
Pat Rogers was very influential in the firearms instruction field, and his courses of instruction are considered some of the best available. Rogers emphasized the need for the shooter to “run the gun”, or in other words master the use of the tool. A Rogers training course was not about shooting tight groups from stationary positions, rather the courses taught the shooter how to win a gun fight.
